NYC LOCAL LAW 97

In 2019, the New York City Council passed the Climate Mobilization Act (Local Law 97), which is an aggressive piece of legislation to reduce 80% of greenhouse gas (GHG) by 2050. This initiative kicks off in 2024 and targets large and medium-sized NYC buildings, which account for nearly a third of all greenhouse gas emissions in the city. 

 

According to the "Green New Deal" law, buildings 25,000 sq. ft. or greater need to reduce their carbon emissions by 40% by 2030, and then by 80% by 2050. Low ENERGY STAR rated buildings will need to act by 2024 to curb their emissions and become compliant. 

You must act and implement an energy management plan by 2023 to avoid increasing fines.
